Connect to ODBC driver on a different machine?

P: n/a
Hi,

I am accessing a web-database via a secure tunnel on machine A in my
LAN. I have an odbc driver installed on machine A and it works fine.
Now I want to access the database with an MS Access Client from machine
B in the same LAN. But machine B does not have a tunnel.

Can I connect somehow to the odbc driver on machine A from machine B?

(Access-Client A) (Access-Client B)
[machine A] ----------- [machine B]
(odbc)
|
|
[Webserver]
(database)

Would be great!

Thank you
Adrian

Not directly. There is no D-ODBC like there is D-COM.
You could use RDP to connect to machine A; then you could use all
resources available on that machine.
